Answer

I regret to advise you that although we hold some of the information you have asked for, your request is refused because we estimate that the cost of compliance would exceed the cost limits under the Act which is currently set at £450 or 18 staff hours work.  This letter represents a Refusal Notice under the Act. 

This is because the information requested in questions 7 and 8 are not centrally recorded and would require an extensive search of our records to find and collate it. In order to ascertain the number of police vehicles available or allocated for use in each of the years requested, a manual review of all live, sold and archived vehicles would be required. It is therefore estimated that it would take considerably longer than 18 hours to comply with these parts of your request.
